Pore by pore,
I've seen the faults
in my skin.
Mirrors shard and
perfect pierces my ears.
When acne speckled
my forehead and my
eyebrows needed a tweeze,
he whispered beautiful. What
is beauty? Another glance
at a reflection, but
I'll never see my eyelids
flutter during REM or watch
the wrinkles around my
lips when I smile.
But he thinks I'm beautiful,
so don't let me ever be perfect.
